is a democratic strategist. let's look at this one. here is michele bachmann who might be fighting to repeat obama care but john boehner concedes it's a losing battle. in an interview with abc after the election the speaker said the election settled the election of obama care. i thought it was a reasonable statement by the speaker. let's listen. >> i think the election changes that. it's pretty clear that the president was re-elected, obama care is the law of the land. >> you know, somebody said on the show the other night something about a few bad apples spoiling the bunch, michael steele. you're laughing because -- i didn't think that was true. if you do get a couple bad apples, they're rotten, been around too long and you put them in with a bunch of other apples, when you pick apples at the safeway, you look to make sure they haven't messed up the other apple, you have people in the republican party that wants to go back to the goo gooey stuff of that causes nothing but tribble. with attack it again? >> i agree with you. and your point to vote about your fruit analogy there is bad apples can ak
. president obama going around congress to achieve his goals department go over too well with some people. >> when biden himself and president, cabinet, attorney general, all of a bunch of leftist democrats talk about using executive orders, you say for what? it can only be to take guns away from people. and who knew that executive order can trump a constitutional amendment. >> rush limbaugh and others saying tsecond amendment in jeopardy. even though no one is talking about confiscating guns. what impact could an executive really have. joining us, will and roland martin. isn't this inflaming this? >> no, any time we talk about dealing with this issue. folks, what do they do, they run to the far extreme by saying, they're trying to take our guns. it's saying, how could you put in something that's meaningful. they also makes some sense. and this is why we can never move forward because they want to go automatically to they're taking our guns. calm down, stop it. >> doesn't it stop like a threat, will? it's not exactly a great negotiating point. >> yeah, it does sound that way. what does he
democrats are in control of everything. >> yeah, yeah. toure gets that disconnect there. the only action of obama in the first term to make it easier to bring them in to national parks but i think in the nra's mind, you know that scene from "the american president." michael douglas says, i'm going to get the guns. and it's the nra. obama's just waiting to do that. >> it's like the clint eastwood thing. talking to a chair, an imagined obama. not talking to the real obama. not criticizing a real obama and possible and they're criticizing an imaginary obama. hee's a -- >> what i was saying -- >> not intentionally. >> what i think the -- what i would say politically the nra would say is they have to do this to restrain him from saying i'm going to get the guns. there are liberals that would like him to channel michael douglas more. we'll see what happens with haul of this debate. odds are you'll hear president obama mention gun violence in his inaugural address on january 21st taking the oath of office twice, once at the white house on january 20th at mandated by the constitution and then at
in corduroys. today democrat charlie rangle is quoted as saying it is embarrassing as hell. the shape of president obama's second term. not enough women. the chief political analyst, gloria, a lot of talk about hillary clinton leaving being replaced by a male. leaving the epa. you have the positions going to men. is this a problem for the president? >> the second where she was hidden by the communications director is not the kind of optics this white house would like. when you talk to them, they are quite defensive about it as one would imagine. they throw out the statistics. they are women and this is a president and 47% of the nominees that have been confirmed the. he nominated two and on and on. this is a problem for them though. because that was photograph and the core log rave of all of this transition has been handled not as smoothly as they would probably like. you had the fiscal cliff in the middle of things, right? >> right, but -- >> all appointments did not move the way they wanted. they department get susan rice and put michelle in at defense. some wanted. you talk about t
, fosters dependency which the democratic party historically has sort of enjoyed, but then in the long-term obama has had this disdain for america's prosperity and their colonialism, imperialism, the worst thing you could do to rich people is turn them into poor people. he's not going to do anything to ameliorate the economic suffering of average americans because this is something that is helping to coalesce that sort of socialist that he's building. >> sean: michael, by the way, i support food stamps, no child in america should go hungry in sean hannity's america. none, we're too rich a country for that to happen. >> i think everyone would agree. >> sean: isn't it better to have a job? isn't it better to have an opportunity and isn't this where obama has failed? if we've added 20 million people to food stamps since he's he president. >> i think most people would agree with your premise, too many people on food stamps and great in one day the food stamp program was eliminated. but in the current economic times i know you hate when i say inherited by this administration. >> sean: banni
, the president, cabinet, attorney general, all a bunch of leftist democrats are talking about using executive orders, when you say for what? it could only be to take guns. . >> i would advise mr. obama to consider what happened to george iii when he was doing similar things against the american colonists. >> the drudge report announced the news by showing images of hitler and stalin. let's step back from the edge, shall we, for just a second and examine what an executive order might really mean. >>> in 1989 after a mass school shooting in stockton, california, president george h.w. bush, a republican, issued an executive order banning the shipment of certain assault weapons unless used for sporting purposes. in 1998, president bill clinton's executive order banned the import of certain assault weapons that had been modified. it is not likely president will issue a total executive issue banning guns. they are meant to execute existing laws. even if he puts in further edicts, they are still edicts. should the president issue an executive order on guns? or tweet mere @carol
people wanted the ryan budget. that test showed that the american public stuck with barack obama and jack lew, who is his chief of staff. so, you know, jeff sessions, interestingly used to be a democrat. >> yes. >> if he can -- if he wants to try to lead a filibuster, we will have the mother of all battles in washington. it will make the chuck hagel nomination look like nothing because this guy, jack lew, is in the heart of the obama administration, and he represents barack obama better than basically anybody. not only did they correct when he was white house chief of staff and budget director, but their values are aligned, and so this would be going right at the president who, as jeff sessions knows, deserves to have his own people in the cabinet. this whole presunmps that you object to somebody that's a brilliant nominee just because you don't like his politics, that's not the american way. >> welcome to the republican party of 2013. jonathan alter and jared bernstein, i wish we had more time. thank you. >>> coming up, a memo to mitt romney. the car guy. >> i drive a mustang and a chevy
that obama ordered up was extremely thin or empty when he got it. look, there is only one point you should make on this. which is the obvious hypocrisy of the democrats who pretend they were the tribute of women against nasty republicans. who are making a war on women. and romney who would have posted policeman in front of pharmacies that would prevent any woman from getting a contraceptive. so, it's a matter of hypocrisy. on the principle, the republicans and conservatives should never counter by race or gender. it's against what our country is and the sooner it's apolished and the sooner people notice the healthier our country will be. >> bret: last word, does he get everybody in? >> that is a good question. in the end he does. i think hagel is a big knock-down drag-out fight but in end he gets through, too. he is the only one that has a chance to be blocked. >> judge? >> agreed. knock-down drag-out and he will get in and he is in there because he is the guy to draw down the military for this president. >> i'm not going ask for one word. >> two? hyphenated. >> bret: that is it for the pa
it. well, president obama says he will not negotiate with congress. won't even think about it. regarding raising the nation's debt ceiling and some house democrats say he doesn't have to negotiate. because they claim the constitution does give him the power to raise the limit on his own. specifically, the 14th amendment which reads in part, look at this. the validity of the public debt of the united states shall not be quedz. of course, there is more to this. mike emanuel is at the white house. what's the reaction from there from republicans. >> republicans say there must be spending cuts and when we're considering raising the nation's credit card limit, the debt ceiling is the time to do it. the white house says it won't negotiate. >> this is about past spending, not future spending. it is about paying our bills. and congress has that responsibility. congress needs to fulfill it. >> remember, republicans had to accept a tax increase in the last crisis. the fiscal cliff. now they want to slash spending. >> we need significant spending cuts and real tax reform to address our lo

's not how congress works. if he wants to work with democrats in congress, it's not going to work the way it does in jersey. >> maybe it should. maybe that would toughen up those guys in washington. >> we have to remind folks when then senator obama ran for president, what did he do? he touted the bills he had passed along with senate president eme mile jones. that is music to the ears of people voting in campaigns. there's a reality when you get to washington, d.c., what governor krchristie is trying t do -- we're helping governor christie a lot because we're focusing on him and no other republicans. he is trying to ride this wave as long as he can because if he can blow somebody away in '13, he is in prime position to raise money and establish support in '14 and '15. >> there's a reason we talk about him. because people like to hear it. he is a different kind of politician than others that people are seen as front-runners. because he also says what he thinks, even when grossly inappropriate. people seem to like hearing that. >> plays against hype. chris christie blows up the map. the re
of the things we heard was it was welcome news to democrats on the hill. they had felt that daly had not been terribly responsive even to them. and jack lew is someone that democrats were very happy to have here standing next to president obama as the chief of staff. so we're definitely hearing some folks who are very much in favor of jack lew taking this position as treasury secretary and ultimately i think is expected to be a confirmation process that is expected to go smoothly. >> let us know when we get that famous two-minute warning before the president and jack lew, tim geithner and company. gloria borger is here with me, kate bold uan is here. alevelsi velshi. the last time i almost is when james baker was white house chief of staff and named treasury secretary. he probably did a good job as treasury secretary. >> for a lot of the same reasons. i think there's a real question of comfort level here. the president knows as we've been talking about that he's got to go into a lot of long-term budget negotiations here that are really important to him on the debt ceiling, on the question of
